I agree, nice report. We were there in September and loved it! We did a day trip with Mike's Bike Tour's for Neuschwanstein and it was excellent! On another day, we rented bikes in Munich from Mike's and spent the day riding all over in the English Gardens, and beyond. That was a great way to see so much!

Hi MMS,

we so wanted to do the bike ride around the English Garden, but somehow just couldn't fit it in. In fact, we missed going to Nymphenburg also...But there's always a next time, and we loved Munich so much that we would most definitely go back.

Nice report, bookmarking that hotel, we love all the Augustiner beer halls. That chicken is so yummy.

Hi Macross,
Thank you so much.
Ya the hotel was just perfect if you want to have some flexibility of making some meals, especially morning breakfast yourself.
Augustiner beer hall was awesome, sadly the beer garden was shut the day we visited, I had a Dunkel that day, oh Boy it was so good and had the traditional veal sausages... that We also visited the Augustiner Braustubl in Salzburg, it was an awesome experience. an absolute must try...We ended up going there twice in our 3 day trip to Salzburg

Thank you for sharing your trip. We are headed to Munich in July and appreciate your ideas. We are also going to Salzburg, what did you do there? Anything to share? Thanks in advance.

Hi Egwright10,

Munich is wonderful and so is Salzburg, you are going to Love it.
We stayed in Salzburg for three days.
on Day 1 we explored Salzburg - Mirabel Gardens, The old town market, the cathedral, the museum, wandered around pretty little lanes, especially Getreidegasse. Then we climbed the Monchensberg Hill to get some spectacular views of the castle and the city. (If you don't want to do the hike you can take Muesuem of Modern Arts Lift to the same viewing platform) and ended the day with a round of beer and roast chicken at the very famous Augestiner Braustubl.
On Day 2 there was a local farmer's market selling fresh produce near Mirabel Palace Gardens so we spent a good 2 hours there and then did a day trip to St. Wolfgang with Panaroma Tours. and spent the night wandering around the riverside, enjoying the spectacular view of the castle in Salzburg.
On Day 3 we took the funicular ride up to the castle and then a day trip to Hallstatt, again with Panorama Tours. and in the night visited the very famous Cafe Sacher to try the original Sacher torte. (was a bit underwhelming honestly, the only thing which I would recommend you give a miss when in Salzburg)
*Both the trips can easily be done on your own as well. we personally enjoyed St. Wolfgang trip as a guided tour as we had a brilliant guide and they took us in a mini Van and it did include the Ship ride but for Hallstatt we would actually recommend that you go by yourself as the bus ride was direct but at the same time very boring.

You can go through these links, see if it's of any help.
1. St. Wolfgang - https://tinyurl.com/yaoom9aw
2. Salzburg Card - https://tinyurl.com/y9fehv94
3. The Hotel we stayed in - https://tinyurl.com/y7xoc9js
4. Hallstatt - https://www.triphobo.com/blog/hallst...ty-destination

P.S. - do take Salzburg Card, it's the best tourist card I have ever come across.
